Initial steps to take for your new crystals and monthly maintenance:
- Clear their energy
- Program by giving a purpose
- Recharge monthly
When you get a crystal, it may be new to you, but it’s been on a long journey to reach its final destination in the palms of your hands. There is a lot of collected energy you want to remove. Because we all want a fresh start for our new journey with our crystals, it’s crucial that the first step you take is clearing your crystals.
How to Program Your Crystals:
In the same way that you need a sense of direction in order to be the best you can be, so does your crystal. Crystals want to work for you, but you need to give them a job. Crystals are neutral; they don’t judge situations as good or bad. They are also amplifiers, and when they are not programmed, can amplify things in your life that you don’t want – because they need to channel their energy in a specific direction.
Giving your crystal a job allows you to set your intention for the work you’ll do together. It creates a certain synergy between you and your crystal ally. Thoughts create vibrations throughout the universe, which makes setting intentions a powerful tool for achieving happiness and well-being.
For the crystal bundles you can give the purpose for all of the crystals to have the focused healing property of the bundle (i.e. Heart Opening, Love & Happiness, Peaceful Emotional Release, and Safe Travels).
1. First, cleanse your crystal.
2. Hold it in your hands, close your eyes and take three deep breaths in through the nose and out through the mouth.
3. Reflect on what makes you happy. This will connect you with your highest vibration.
4. While in this space of love and light, ask that your crystal be cleared of all unwanted energy and any previous programming. For example, aloud or in your head, say “I ask that the highest vibration of love and light connect with my highest self to clear all unwanted energy and any previous programming. I command this crystal to hold the intention of…". To finish this sentence, add the purpose or intentions for your crystal, energies you wish it to hold for you.
5. End your programming in gratitude for the crystal’s energetic assistance by saying “thank you”.
Simple Methods for Clearing Your Crystals:
Immerse your crystals in the sacred smoke of Sage, Frankincense, or Palo Santo. This is a quick and easy option. Simply use a feather or your hand to waft the smoke over and around your crystals while setting the intension of removing all unwanted energy. Crack a window or door while clearing so the unwanted energy has an easy place to exit your space.
Sunlight or Moonlight
Let your crystals bathe outside in light of the sun or moon for at least 4 hours. Make sure that you place your crystals outside to clear and recharge their energy at least once a month preferably under the full moon.
Cleansing with Clear Quartz or Selenite crystals
Both Selenite and Clear Quartz crystal have the unique ability to cleanse, recharge and purify the energy of other crystals, without diminishing their own energy. Lay your crystals on or next to a piece of Clear Quartz or Selenite for 6+ hours.
Tip: Any worn jewelry that is on you throughout the day can be cleared as well by placing it atop or next to Selenite or Clear Quartz when you go to bed each night. When you wake in the morning, the jewelry will be cleared of all the energy that was picked up from the previous day.
Return to Nature
We could all use an energetic reset in nature every now and then. To give your crystals that revitalizing pleasure place them on the soil or even bury them within the Earth for 24 hours.
Recharging you crystals:
It is important to recharge your crystals so their energetic healing properties will continue to assist you. Once a month place your crystals outside to recharge their energy under the full moon. If you prefer to keep your crystals indoors, you can put them on a windowsill. If you won’t be around your crystals on the actual night of the full moon three days before or after will recharge them as well.
